It's a shame we don't have medical professionals checking in here « on: March 05, 2017, 02:50:39 am »
It’s very odd that there are apparently so few doctors that check in here.
I used to be a chronic pain patient (I’m one of the few that got better btw). That’s how I ended up on lunesta. I used to frequent chronic pain forums. There were usually several pain doctors that frequented those forums and they were quite helpful.
There seems to be a total absence of doctors here.
We did have Perseverance, who was apparently some sort of medical professional (I’m not sure of the details). She came here because of her own ordeal with benzos, but she was so helpful to so many here as evidenced by all the pinned topics she was responsible for at the top of this forum. Thankfully she seems to have healed and moved on, but she’s left a hole that no one else has filled.
It almost feels like the medical profession has deserted us, which is a bit cruel given that they were in most cases the ones that gave us these drugs in the first place.
